South philly dogSadly, the South Philly Dog is not included.  Yet.

God I love technology.

There is not a day that goes by that I am not amazed by something my iPhone does.  Today is no different.

An article on the front page of the Inquirer tells us about a new app that allows you to order food and have it delivered to your seat at Citizen's Bank Park.  If you have an iPhone of iPad 3g (who the hell would bring an iPad to a game?), then you can download the newest app from MLB called "Fan Direct."  The "free" app determines your location (to make sure you're actually at the game) and allows you to choose from a selection of cheese steak, Tony Luke’s Roasted Pork, Bulls BBQ Turkey Sandwich, Planet Hoagie Italian Hoagie and Eastern Shore Crab Cake Sandwich (that info via Philly Sports Daily), all of which are served with a brownie and chips.  I love this country.


You can also order water, soda, and Bud or Bud Lite (with food).  But all of this will cost you.  An $8.50 Tony Luke's pork sandwich will run $12.50 (with brownie and chips).  No word on if the other sandwiches are from the brand name vendors, since it looks like all of the meals are prepard in a kitchen behind home plate.  Here's my plea to have the South Philly Dog added to the menu, please?

To download the app, just fire up your 2010 MLB At-Bat app and click "more."  From there you will see "at the ballpark."  Click that and choose CBP and you will see a button to launch the food ordering app.

Of course, this assumes that the iPhone will continue to work at CBP.  It was supposedly fixed earlier this year, but I had problems again on Monday night.
